  • Climate Change and Environment
    • The purpose is to assist the country in its efforts in delivering development programs and plans that support the strengthening of adaptation and resilience to the effects of climate change and promoting environmental sustainability and biodiversity preservation, in the spirit of the Paris agreement on climate change in December 2015, and towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • Sexual and Reproductive Health
    • The aim is to remove obstacles to the empowerment of women, girls and vulnerable communities that prevent them from enjoying their full rights and to the access of sexual and reproductive health services. The objective is also to contribute to taking their full place in the economic, social and political life.
  • Sports as a Tool for Inclusion
    • The aim is to support innovative projects, especially in urban areas including zones of spontaneous settlement, bringing together a multiplicity of actors (CSOs, institutions, private sectors, federations, etc.).

Funding Information

Each successful project will be supported with a grant ranging from € 15,000 to € 30,000 for a period of 12 to 18 months duration for project implementation.

Any Civil Society Organization (CSO) legally registered to operate in Ghana can apply Conditions for CSOs:

  • CSOs that are legally registered and recognized in Ghana;
  • CSOs that are affiliated to known coalitions and networks;
  • CSOs with offices in the regions, and especially in the districts where they plan to implement the project. Credible national CSOs may also collaborate with local CSOs located within their preferred project districts to apply for a Project.

What kinds of proposals are expected?

  • Proposals should clearly defined plans, objectives and indicators of monitoring and evaluation that address the current identified sectors.  These proposals should go beyond purely descriptive research or status reports but must present actionable plans and propose potential solutions which can be implemented directly at local level.
  • A co-financing from the project holder (in cash or kind) is expected (20% minimum).
  • The running costs of the project should not exceed 10% of the total budget.
  • Projects benefiting from co-financing with other partners (NGOs, private sector, local authorities, other donors, etc.) will be favored.
  • The selection committee will give preference to most disadvantaged regions, especially but not limited to those in the northern part of Ghana.
  • Projects will have to take into account the gender factor in all its dimensions and at all levels. Whether in terms of project beneficiaries and capacity building actions, staff of the organisation, or involvement in the implementation of actions, projects should include gender indicators and candidates should provide proof of this consideration and mastery of the concept.
